so i think i’ve decided to code valdi in HaxeFlixel. Haxe was recommended to me by Terry Cavanagh as a great language for indie development. considering that he started gamedev in QBasic just like me, I figured i’d take his advice.
I’m just getting started with it, sand it’s been a lot of fun so far. to help me get my head around what i need to do with the game-board, i created this diagram below.
the central mechanic involves swiping rows of tiles to move them horizontally or vertically. As tiles go off one end of the game-board, they reappear on the other side. (a swipe can move more than one tile over at a time). A single tap will move valdi to a new spot on the map.
